Arts in Parks Funding Available for 2017 Wintertime Events

Hosting a wintertime art event in a Seattle park? Apply for funding today! 

 

Seattle Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce funding opportunities for wintertime events in city parks. Individuals and community groups can request up to $1,000 in funding for events that have a significant arts component and that engage underserved communities. Individuals, artists, neighborhood arts councils and local community-based groups are encouraged to apply, and applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Friday, November 17, 2017. Applicants will be notified of their project status within 5 business days (by Wednesday, November 22, 2017). The events must be completed by the end of the day on Sunday, December 17, 2017, and only City of Seattle parks are eligible sites for these events. Before applying, be sure to visit www.Seattle.gov/Parks to look up a specific park to ensure your desired park site is indeed owned by the City of Seattle.

 

The Arts in Parks initiative is an opportunity for the City to invest in the vibrant cultural work being done in and by diverse communities throughout Seattle. This pilot program supports neighborhood arts councils, local artists, and community-based groups that are seeking to activate Seattle Parks with new and established festivals or events that promote arts and cultural participation, celebrate our diversity, and build community connections with historically underserved communities including immigrant and refugee communities, communities of color, low-income communities and LGBTQ communities.
